Following the guidance of Idaho’s public health experts, Governor Brad Little issued a statewide 21 day stay-home order yesterday for all Idahoans. Effective immediately, in the best interest of our participants, visitors and employees, we are extending our current suspension of all city sponsored and affiliated activities, classes, programs, sports and events through Sunday, April 19.  This is a constantly evolving process and we are grateful for the community’s support and patience as we navigate the mitigation of COVID-19. We highly encourage the community to stay tuned to our the City of Eagle website, social media platforms (@CITYOFEAGLEIDAHO, @EAGLEPARKSRECREATION) for the most up to date information.  Below you will find more detailed information regarding this decision.
